Know Your Numbers - Blood pressure measures the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. If your blood pressure stays high for a long time, you may suffer from high blood pressure ( also called hypertension). High blood pressure increases your risk for heart attack or stroke more than any other risk factor. Know your numbers, contact the parish nurse Edye Durham RN,FCN and be screened today
ST. JOSEPH MOMS’ GROUP
Mothers of the Heart is a social group for moms of St. Joseph School and Parish. We meet two mornings a month from 8 – 10 a.m. in the Parish Life Center.. Free loving childcare is provided for children in a separate room of the PLC. It’s a great way to make new friends and chat with other moms. If you are interested in some time for yourself with female conversation and fellowship in a relaxed atmosphere, then we welcome you to join us at Mothers of the Heart. Look for our activities on the monthly school calendars and in the St. Joseph Church Bulletin. Mothers of the Heart sponsors the SJS Uniform Consignment Sale.
The Saint Joseph Women's Club has been in existence since the beginning of the church.
From these funds, donations have been made to our Parish Health Ministry, to SJS Tuition Assistance, to the Social Action Committee and to help fund the church landscaping, just to name a few. The Womens' Club is open to all women of our Parish and all members, living and deceased are remembered at the Mass the 2nd Tuesday of each month, which is also the day of the Women's Club regular meeting and our Monthly Potluck Luncheon.
The Neighbors in Christ committee ministers to members of our parish community by providing meals in the event of a funeral. Both the immediate bereaved and the larger social community can benefit from a funeral meal which functions as a group experience that focuses on the needs of the living. It can be a shared experience in a familiar structured setting which enables the living to celebrate the life of the deceased. Any contributions to this ministry are greatly appreciated.
Neighbors in Christ is in need of someone to coordinate the funeral luncheons provided for the families of deceased members of our parish. Duties include organizing volunteers to provide covered dishes and serving during the meal. This ministry is such a blessing to the families in their time of need. If you are interested, please call the church office or Fr. Tomy directly.

A vibrant community of Single Catholics, male and female, looking for a clear path for growth in our personal holiness. We desire avenues for spiritual direction, community building, networking with other like-minded singles who desire the chaste lifestyle and live to witness to the Gospel, sustaining each other through prayer, fasting and Adoration.
Our ages range from 30 to 90+, and we are interested in joining with other Parishes to build a living and loving Community of Singles who are not only looking for a partner in life, but also to support and encourage those who wish to give their lives totally to Christ.
WHAT WE ARE NOT….
WHERE ARE WE?
WHY DID WE FORM THIS GROUP?
The need was seen for a ministry entirely devoted to Catholic singles, due to our need for community, our desire for closeness and intimacy within the framework of the Catholic environment; being an important aspect of the Body of Christ. Our strength is our Singleness. Our desire will be to use it for the Glory of God and the unity of Christ’s Church.
You are welcome to bring your Catholic friends, especially those who are in need of vocational counseling, or those in a committed relationship, but still unmarried.
